Of giveaways and May celebrations

Firstly, a reminder for anyone who may have brought "Mr. Pumpkin-Head And Other Poems" and not yet entered my giveaway, or who planned to enter but hasn't gotten around to buying the book and entering yet; you have 2 days left to do so!

The giveaway ends Thursday night, the winner will be announced on Saturday, and all being well a new giveaway will start up on Sunday (and this one wont cost you anything but a few minutes of your time).


While I was busy with the A-Z challenge thing, several birthdays and things went by. So, I thought I'd give a mention to all the May celebrations; whether I mentioned them before on here or not.

May 1st was the birthday of a family friend named Emma (not little Emma-Jane; a different Emma... This one's known the family long enough to have babysat me when I was Emma-Jane's age, so it's definitely a different one!)

May 1st was also Beltane/May Day!

May 2nd was Kelly's birthday.

May 3rd was my bloggerversary.

May 9th was Elizabeth (my honorary sister)'s birthday.

May 13th was the grand opening of "The Game" craft blog.

May 16th was Rachel (my sister-in-law; well, I suppose ex-sister-in-law, but whatever)'s birthday.

May 18th was Lainie's birthday.

May 18th was also my Dad's new girlfriend Stephanie's birthday.

May 20th was Deanna (as in "Punkn" - just to clarify since I have two Deannas posting on my blog now)'s birthday.

May 21st was the birthday of a family friend named Julian.

May 22nd was mine and Kelly's 9th wedding anniversary.

May 22nd was also the birthday of a family friend named David.

May 23rd was Kero's birthday.

May 30th will be my Uncle Phillip's birthday.

May 30th will also be my Auntie Bev (Uncle Phillip's wife)'s birthday.

So, happy everything! LOL!

And if you - or a friend or family member of yours - celebrated a birthday, an anniversary, a bloggerversary, or whatever during May, then, happy whatever it was to everyone involved!

Thank you for the birthday shout-out Tori and Happy Birthday to all of the May babies. What a busy month!

I've bought your book, but have not had a chance to read it yet. It has been that busy around here! I'm looking forward to taking the time soon, though.

You're welcome about the birthday shout-out! :)

No problem about the book. I hope you'll have a chance to read it in time to take part in the giveaway. If not, sorry!
